With Jürgen Kuhfuß "Monuments" is an attack on the meaning of monuments, here in Düsseldorf / Germany.
And then suddenly a film with a recognizable concept was shown, an attack on the Monument Forest in Düsseldorf from imperialist and fascist days, along with the call to replace the monuments with memorials for the victims from these bloody times. That was a debatable attempt to make visible and attack the "Unresolved past". (PETER STEINHART, RP, 6.4.72)
The Lutz Mommartz Film Archive is a collection of the film works of German film-maker Lutz Mommartz, considered to be one of the pioneers in the film genre known as the "other cinema". Mommartz was born in Erkelenz in 1934 and spent most of his life in Düsseldorf. He began making movies in 1967 and eventually became Professor of Film at the Kunstakademie Münster. He still lives and works in Germany, dividing his time between Düsseldorf and Berlin.
